Fundraise for us
We’re delighted that you are thinking about fundraising for the BPA and contributing to our mission to support and educate patients, relatives and clinicians about porphyria. Our supporters take part in events all over the country to raise funds, for which we are extremely grateful.
There are many different ways you can raise money for the BPA. Want to run a half marathon, or raise money for charity through your wedding? Whether you’re doing it on your own, with friends and family, or as part of a school, work, university or faith group, the BPA can help.
If you have any questions, or need support with your event, please contact us at email@example.com.
Why fundraise? Fundraising FAQs
Why is it necessary to raise funds?
Without the people who support us by raising funds we would be unable to provide leaflets and vital support to our patients, provide a helpline, help with medical research projects, or push forwards with education.
Who can be involved?
Anyone and everyone can be involved in some way, no matter what age or abilities they have.
How much work is involved?
You can make your own choices as to how much time and effort you are able to put in to your fund raising project. You may find that your company or school will be pleased to help you with an event, for example by allowing a ‘dress down’ day, or sponsored event.
How do I get started?
Have a browse of our fundraising toolkit pages for ideas, you will be surprised at how many things that you could do.
What help can the BPA offer to fundraisers?
We can advertise your event on our events page and may be able to offer other practical advice.
Please browse these fundraising toolkit pages for more guidance on both large-scale and small-scale events. Our sponsor forms contain all the information your supporters will need to make gift aid declarations. We may also be able to provide merchandise for the event. Please let us know if you need our help.
What’s in it for me?
You will no doubt have a great deal of fun, you might meet new people and forge new relationships, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping the British Porphyria Association to continue its work helping patients and their families.
